Bone Thugs-n-Harmony’s Krayzie Bone has made sure he will not spend a single night behind bars over a driving under the influence charge last summer by agreeing to alcohol education class.
According to reports, Bone will go on three years probation and have to start classes immediately.
As part of the plea agreement, Krayzie pled “no contest” yesterday to driving with a blood alcohol level of .08 or higher — following his July arrest in L.A., when police popped him for DUI. He was sentenced to 3 years summary probation, and must enroll in an alcohol education program asap. Bone had also been charged with an additional DUI count stemming from the arrest, as well as driving without a license, but those two counts were dropped in exchange or the “no contest” plea. (TMZ)
Prior to accepting a plea deal, Bone proclaimed his innocence in the case.
